“Two weeks before the decision of the Council of the European Union on the opening of borders for Ukrainians, there was a similar decision on a number of states, including Moldova, Armenia, and Azerbaijan. The EU countries that opened the border for them, prepare news for Ukrainians on the same rule,” the message says.
Thus, the list of countries that will observe recommendations of the Council of Europe includes Austria, Iceland (not EU member but a member of the Schengen Area), Spain, Luxembourg, Portugal, and the Netherlands.
The Netherlands admitted the Ukrainians before but only with the certificate on vaccination by any of the drugs used in Ukraine. Comparing this experience with terms for Moldova, from now on, the negative test for coronavirus will not be required. The certificates of vaccination and/or tests will be required by other countries, particularly Iceland, Luxembourg, and Spain.
On July 15, the Council of Europe recommends EU member countries lift the entry restrictions for Ukrainian citizens. The Council's recommendation foresees that the list will be revised and refreshed regularly.
